Which Bicol towns are under threat of storm surge?

DOST's Project NOAH has released an updated list of the Bicol municipalities under risk of storm surge today, December 5, 2014.

According to the official blog, the list "is a refined version of PAGASA’s general advisory for storm surges and is issued more than a day ahead of Typhoon Ruby’s (Hagupit) landfall. It serves as a guideline for timely, steady and organized evacuation of communities, residents and families living in the affected areas."

Project NOAH cautions: "those living in coastal areas under signal nos. 3 and 2 are alerted against possible occurrence of 3-4 meter storm surges. Do not evacuate during the typhoon as flying debris caused by strong winds can cause fatal casualties and loss."--BICOLSTANDARD.COM
